comment arcgis server performance comparison
Wait, is she really downloading 1.4Gb of data in a WFS request? I'd hesitate before sending that via FTP

comment How can I save and re-apply symbology properties for a classified raster in ArcMap 10.2?
@nugget the Save option should be found at the top right of the Symbology dialog, beside the Import button. Try using Alt-X (for eXport) to see if you can force the dialog manually. It shouldn't depend on the license level but may depend on the raster type.

comment How to run a python script on the server, returning the results to the client
... still working on it but gis.stackexchange.com/a/34968/3112 helps - I need to set a Derived output parameter in order to receive a response back from the script.

comment How to run a python script on the server, returning the results to the client
Thanks @Mr.Concolato - good to know. Since I'm relying on arcpy functionality, the AJAX approach probably requires a dedicated installation of ArcGIS Desktop on the server(?) so the geoprocessing service approach may be more suitable?

comment How to run a python script on the server, returning the results to the client
This is probably veering towards needing a new question, but I'll persist here for the moment. Assuming I've built up a JSON object in Python - what is the command to return the JSON object from the server to the client? thanks

comment How to run a python script on the server, returning the results to the client
What is a geoprocessing service states a task takes simple data captured in a web application, processes it, and returns meaningful and useful output in the form of features, maps, reports, and files - but what if I want to return text, in the form of HTML?

Thanks Jeremy. I'm experienced in Python scripts on the client, but a total novice at using them via ArcGIS Server, so I'll give this a try

Thanks. I'm working at a client site, so it should only take about a year for the upgrade to happen ;)

comment What makes a MXD file size larger and how to decrease its size?
wow - I was struggling with an MXD which blew out to 100Mb for no apparent reason. I removed one gp result and it's back down to 1.5Mb. This is a very good thing to know

comment 5-star rating for mobile iOS app
Yeah I hear ya - the Stack Exchange experience can be a bit frustrating. Have you tried looking for jQuery plugins, eg Good Rating plugin?

comment 5-star rating for mobile iOS app
If you've got the map bit working, but are struggling with the 5-star rating bit, I'd say this is the wrong forum on which to ask the question. You should also post the second question about data hosting separately - but note that Stack Exchange is not designed for recommendations, just solid answers

Which areas of the world? BTW, calling for a quote doesn't seem something you need to be overly concerned about.

comment Joining to data in ArcGIS Online
Since the client is an ArcMap user, you could just do the join in ArcMap. Then incorporate ArcGIS Online by publishing the map that you create and viewing it online, on your phone, etc

comment How to check if an ArcGIS extension has already been checked out manually in arcpy?
I'd say the Int(1) thing is good enough - I've done much hackier things in my time...

comment Does ArcGIS Online support versioning?
@mapperz thanks, but the bit I'm struggling with is how that corresponds to ArcGIS Online. I can't see anything which explicitly states that AGOL does/does not support versioning

comment Define spatial reference of layer in ArcGis JavaScript API
There is a sample called any projection which shows how to feature layer without a basemap. Does that help?
